So as we all know Farnborough was called off due to the weather conditions freezing the playing surface. Not great, but what can you do?!
We were lucky enough to get hold of an inside sports gym where we trained hard and played 6 vs 6 games. Good laugh but also a good quality session which we needed to have a good sweat.
It was good news that the gaffer could arrange a friendly game during the week against local opposition, Whitstable. Just like to say a big thank you for them coming down as we all appreciated playing against them.
In tough conditions, with the rain and the heavy pitch, the lads performed well netting seven times and not conceding. It was nice to blow off a few cobwebs ahead of Saturday’s game against Truro.
I must mention that Baz’s goal last night oozed with quality. A little short corner taken and a great whip into the top corner of the goal, although some say he was trying to find Ed at the far post. No, but honestly, what a strike!
Well done to the other lads for taking their chances and netting a few goals too.
Also, he keeps reminding me to say it so I’d better mention it… congratulations to Lee Hook, who has now played five games and kept five clean sheets… snore!!
So Saturday brings us to Truro at home. As we know, these are a tough team who beat us in our first defeat of the season 1-0 at their place. It didn’t help though when the ref and the linesman fancied sending Tommy off for a trip on their player when apparently he was through on goal.
With the game last night and training tonight I’m sure we are more than ready to face them this Saturday and continue our good run of form in the league, pushing further towards the all important 5th spot.
We hope to see a lot of you down there supporting us; it does really help.
